Facial masks for each skin type: dry, normal, combination, and oily skin

Each skin type is unique and requires a unique approach.

Here are some facial mask recipes that are created specifically to give the best nutrition and produce best results for each of the skin types (ST)

Normal ST


1 ripe banana

Simply mash a banana and apply to face. Let it rest for 20 minutes or so.

The best thing to do it to rinse it off with unsweetened chamomile tea but regular, lukewarm water is just fine.

This mask can be applied 1 to 2 times a week.

Dry ST


200 ml (7oz) of yogurt
1 tablespoon of finely ground almonds
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of wheat germ oil.

Mix in a bowl and apply to face. Let it rest until it feels dry and rinse off with lukewarm water.

Or prepare these two masks:

Mix one egg yolk, a teaspoon honey and a teaspoon olive oil and some vitamin E oil. Spread over your face and neck, leave on for 15 – 30 min then rinse in lukewarm water. You can add more olive oil if you still feel dry on your skin.

Dry and spotted skin

Mix dry oatmeal (you may grind it in a blender), honey and plain yogurt to make a paste. Spread it over your face and neck, leave on 15 – 30 min then rinse with lukewarm water. You may add a little salt and olive oil to make an exfoliating mask or scrub for your bocy dry skin area.

Oily ST


200 ml (7oz) of yogurt
2 drops of menthol oil
juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 teaspoons of inactive yeast
1 potato.

Peel a potato and place it in a bowl of water. Let it stay there for a couple of hours.

You will need 2 teaspoons of this water. Mix in all the ingredients and add those 2 tablespoon of "potato water".

Apply to skin, let it rest for 20-30 min and rinse with luke warm water.

Combination ST


1 potato

Peel the potato and cut it into thin slices. Place it on the face and let it rest for about 15min. Rince off with camomille tea or luke warm water if you don't have tea handy.

Problem Skin Type


1 tablespoon of active brewer's yeast

Heat up yeast over steam.

You can put it on your skin up to 3 times a day.

It is recommended that you drink fresh carrot juice daily when applying this, it is supposed to enhance the effects.

Some masks are so neutral and gentle that they can be used on more than one skin type. Such is the normal, combination skin, oily and blemished skin facial mask.

Mix one egg white, 1/2 cup cooked instant oatmeal, a teaspoon olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice until smooth. Spread on your face and neck, leave on for 15 to 30 min then rinse with lukewarm water.

Few drops lemon juice will help to reduce blackheads while egg white will leave your skin feel tight after this mask application.
